[Intro]
Bb Gm Eb D F

[Verse 1]
Bb
Make sure nobody sees you leave
Gm Eb
Hood over your head, keep your eyes down
D
Tell your friends you're out for a run
F
You’ll be flushed when you return
Bb
Take the road less traveled by
Gm Eb
Tell yourself you can always stop
D
What started in beautiful rooms
F
Ends with meetings in parking lots


[Chorus]
D Eb
And that's the thing about illicit affairs
F
And clandestine meetings and longing stares
Bb Eb
It's born from just one single glance
F
But it dies and it dies and it dies
Bb
A million little times


[Verse 2]
Bb
Leave the perfume on the shelf
Gm Eb
That you picked out just for him
D
So you leave no trace behind
F
Like you don’t even exist
Bb
Take the words for what they are
Gm Eb
A dwindling, mercurial high
D
A drug that only worked
F
The first few hundred times


[Chorus]
Bb Eb
And that's the thing about illicit affairs
F
And clandestine meetings and stolen stares
Bb Eb
They show their truth one single time
F
But they lie and they lie and they lie
Bb
A million little times


[Verse 3]

And you wanna scream
Bb
Don't call me "kid," don't call me "baby"
Gm
Look at this godforsaken mess that you made me
Eb F
You showed me colors you know I can't see with anyone else
Bb
Don't call me "kid," don't call me "baby"
Gm
Look at this idiotic fool that you made me
Eb F
You taught me a secret language I can't speak with anyone else
Gm Eb Bb
And you know damn well
F Bb
For you, I would ruin myself
Bb
A million little times
